Happy News

You are read­ing the blog of the newest board mem­ber of Grants to You, a won­der­ful non-prof­it orga­ni­za­tion based in Prescott, Ari­zona. I’m going to be doing a lot of work involv­ing the web site and serv­ing on a new com­mit­tee. I’m tick­led pink!

In oth­er news, I got to intro­duce some­one to the Dres­den Files today! I thought every­body had heard of Butcher’s books, but in case there’s anoth­er fan­ta­sy fan out there who has been deprived: you want to read these, I promise. They’re about Chicago’s only pro­fes­sion­al wiz­ard, Har­ry Dres­den. He rou­tine­ly deals with vam­pires, demons, werewolves—you name it. There was a short-lived tele­vi­sion show that should have been longer, but it died the death of so many great shows (like Fire­fly).

Start with Storm Front, but know that you’ll want to have Fool Moon and Grave Per­il handy.

I love them so much that I keep all four­teen vol­umes (thir­teen nov­els and a col­lec­tion of short sto­ries) on my Nook as com­fort read­ing. I’m eager to read num­ber four­teen, and I can’t think of many oth­er authors who can keep the excite­ment going that long. I’ve nev­er encoun­tered one per­son who does­n’t like these books if they’ve read them, so give them a try!

  1. Hooray! That’s mar­velous news! 😀 That sounds both chal­leng­ing and inter­est­ing. Hope you have great suc­cess with it.
